Speedo won't change from mph to km.

Hi, The speedo on my 2002 VFR800 vtech is not reading correctly. The milage reading is correct but I cannot change it from MPH to KM. Currently the reading is in MPH but it says KM on the clock. I've tried using the Select button to change it but it won't. Any ideas ?

How do i change the speed-o-meter from MPH to KM/H and how do I set the time as it is supposed to be?

its usually done via the small buttons on the speedo assembly.some models like the gilera's need to be set form kmh to mph within a certain mileage or it cannot be changed the clock should be adjustable at any time.

Get on it and ride it some more, as the wheels turn they will then turn the speedo drive weather in the gear box or at the front wheel,

This in turn twists the speedo cable or fires the electronic speedo drive , this will then make the speedo needle leave the zero stopper and slowly rotate in the speedo cluster.

Whilst this is happening the trip meter will clock over meters + kilometre's , this will add milage to you fz.

Now this is a long winded description of how to do it but I guess that if you can t work out how to add milage to your bike you needed it.

good luck with it hope this info helps you.

I changed the speedo on my 95 fatboy from MPH to KPH but it seems to still read like it is in miles. Do i need to change the speedo drive or is there a way to adjust them.

Hi Nunya, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

How to change from mph to kph

As the triumph is a British bike, the speedo reads in MPH. You can get stickers off the internet (ebay) that you can stick on the speedo glass to remind you of the KPH speeds.

Also be aware that my Triumph speedo from around 12 years ago read faster than I was actually doing any way, even at speeds of only 50kph!

2002 flht speedo stopped working no light no speed no milage also turn signals will not self cancel these two showed up at the same time

I can't think of the name of the part, but I believe the two are related, and run through an electronic gizmo, that reads the speed/mph and shuts offs the blinkers. Turn signal controller maybe?

You can't with out braking a couple little parts inside the speedo. You can give it a try I have heard of it being done without any damage. Here in my state it's against the law to do this.

Copied from the manual. You can download it here: Quote: To change to kilometers per hour or miles per hour: - Disconnect the battery. (the total distance will be saved). - Re-connect the battery whilst holding down either button and it will read either; met -- for km/h mil --- for mp/h - The white plastic block connector on the speedo is for the display backlight. - The red wire is positve. - The black wire is negative. - Warning; your speedo is set for the diameter of your front wheel enduro 21 supermoto 17 If you get the display to read a 00 then you are in the rolling radius changing mode. you can trim the speed to run fast or slow. It ranges from a-25 to a 25. NOTE Standard setting is a 00 we recommend you keep it at that. 0.0 Trip distance 0000,
